"Everybody" by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
Everybody is summoned by God to make account of their life before passing into the unknown afterlife. Everybody solicits Friendship, Kinship, and Worldly Goods to accompany them, only to discover, "you can't take it with you." Jacobs-Jenkins' play, "a very meta and saucy adaptation" (Time Out NY) of a 15th century Morality Play and tells the same allegorical and thought provoking story only with humor, modern theatrics, and contemporary commentary on stage representation.

In a deserted neighborhood in post-communist Budapest, young bohemians squat in an abandoned building and build a bar. Reclaiming the Jewish identity their parents’ generation abandoned after the Holocaust, they create a vibrant new subculture that combines big ideas and intense debates with wild parties. Friendships form and fray, couples recombine, people change, the neighborhood is transformed. But when authoritarianism and anti-Semitism make a surprise comeback in the country at large, will the place they built survive? A tale of friendship, idealism, and coming of age, set against the backdrop of Hungary’s current terrifying slide into dictatorship—and the global rise of right-wing populism.
